Therapeutic Area Grants
Lilly Canada’s therapeutic area grants program provides funding for not-for-profit scientific associations and other health-based not-for profit organizations that support excellence in disease awareness, scientific innovation and/or patient care.
We prioritize requests for support in the following scientific and therapeutic areas:
Cancer (breast, lung, thyroid, colorectal, diagnostics)
Immunology (dermatology, rheumatology)
Pain (migraine headache)
Types of Requests Supported:
Consistent with a mandate to promote excellence in disease awareness, education and scientific innovation, we support organizations whose overall objectives and specific projects align with the following:
Improvement in the quality of health care and health care delivery
Improvement in public health and patient care (e.g., disease awareness or prevention).
Types of Requests Not Supported:
Travel, accommodation and registration fees for medical conferences and seminars
Retirement dinners, graduations, class reunions, retreats
Any product or in-kind gifts, such as promotional t-shirts or pens, to auction or distribute for charitable purposes
Fundraising via gala events, golf tournaments, sporting events, teams, walkathons, dinners
Equipment, infrastructure or operating expenses and/or “bricks & mortar”
Due to the limited availability of resources, only a select number of recipients will be awarded grants based on the projects’ merit and alignment with one or more of the four therapeutic areas listed above.
